Give yourself a BIG break today. Send the kids to Grandma's and make them promise to bring you home a nice plate of food.... that way they can celebrate T-day again... with you.
Take a hot bath, take a few deep breaths, use your medication as prescribed.... and if you need to, go to the hospital or call 911, that's what they're there for. I've only had EMS out once (when I thought I was having my 2nd heart attack)... then I "came out of it" and decided not to go to the hospital. The EMS guys said it was OK if I ended up calling them back out to the house. He said, "That's what we're here for".
I know this won't cure Lyme disease.... but it might help get you through the day. And, that's all any of us can do.
PS - It is OK to be sick on holidays.
We'll get through today - Jennifer
